Mosaic punch, Spotlight technique, Swallowtail

More cards


I realized I never showed you the rest of the cards we made at our downline meeting on Sunday! These two cards were prepared for us by Demonstrators Michelle, Peggy and Valerie. I love learning new techniques, have you ever done the spotlight technique? Leave me a comment if you’d like directions on how to make this card!


Here is a close up to see the “spotlight” part of the butterfly better.


What do you think?? I love reading your comments? Happy Friday!


Happy stamping!

What a Great Day!

Hi there stampers!
Did you miss me yesterday? I had such a great, but long, day! We had an awesome event up at my friend Wendy’s cottage, right on the beautiful Lake Luzerne!! I met so many great people, everyone loved all my hand-made items, I did better than I hoped with sales, and am excited that some ladies want to book home parties, and I received several custom orders. By the time I got home and unpacked, it was time for me to view an online Stampin’ Up! launch party for the new 2013-14 Annual Catalog… There were some technical glitches, and to made a long story short, I was online until 12:30 am this morning.

Today was a busy day too… I picked up my mom to take her to church, and what a fantastic service (it was a three tissue service for me), it was wonderful to see and hear about all of God’s amazing love in action in our community. Then I had an amazing time at our monthly demonstrator get-together (New York Inketts), see the card at the top of this post? This card was brought to us by the amazing team of Marie T and Regina.
And how cute is this punch art xylophone? What a great card for a kids birthday! This was a make-and-take from Judy and Lucinda.

Next was this adorable note card box, with 4 notecards, (I have to confess.. I didn’t finish mine), this was a make and take by Amy (I’m not sure who her partner was). It was made by modifying the fancy favor die box.

Last but not least, was this swallowtail butterfly card, how gorgeous is this card by Ann and Marybeth?
I actually didn’t make this card (it is Ann’s), I had to scoot early as my family put together a birthday dinner for me tonight, it was fantastic! (My birthday is tomorrow).

My brother (the chef), and his wife/my amazing sister-in-law made me an amazing dinner of chicken forrester over rice, a yummy green salad, green beans and my talented sister baked me an angel food cake with raspberries and layer of strawberry filling. Trying to be carb conscious and healthy! It was a fun filled family evening!
Well, that’s it for now! Hope you know that if you have any questions or stamping needs, please feel free to shoot me an email at or comment here, I’m happy to help! Mark your calendars for the retired list is coming out this Wednesday April 24th!
Until tomorrow, happy stamping!
